Problems facing waste recyclers

Some of the biggest problems that waste recyclers face – which we can provide a solution for – includes:

  • Unpleasant odour from waste that hasn’t been disposed of or recycled correctly
  • Production of chemical fumes used to treat or clean elements on-site, and the chemicals used in the process of turning waste into energy
  • Dust and particulates created during the process, which can pose serious, long-term health risks 
  • Noise pollution from machinery use and waste depositing
  • Heat and humidity due to steam generators


Recycling legislation icon

In recent years, government legislation and subsequent penalties have put increasing pressure on local authorities to recycle and reuse household waste. This has resulted in a huge amount of investment in the recycling and waste sector. 

Consequently, there has been a surge in demand for the construction and improvement of recycling facilities and energy-from-waste (EFW) recovery plants.

Eco-friendly waste processing

The energy-from-waste plants use an anaerobic digestion process to take in huge amounts of waste each day. This comes from a variety of sources including general household waste, animal by-products and industrial waste. It is then broken down to produce biogas and biofertiliser as an eco-friendly way to process waste.
